New Hornby Class 56 breaks cover

Just a couple of days too late for Warley, what were they thinking!

Just appeared on the Hattons website in the past few minutes, the BR Blue Class 56 R2645.

See the Hornby website for more info:

A little over the odds at £80 perhaps (Hattons' price) , but I've just ordered one in excitement. Just past the 2pm cut off for guaranteed next day delivery, but fingers crossed!

I do agree that this fixation with side images really does not show any model at its best. It also tends to make the annual catalogue very bland. What would be much nicer is a series of views of the loco (not all three quarter like Bachmann)

Don't agree the overall concept looks Toy like. Actually I think the Hornby presentation is quite sophisticated.

The model looks very good- even though I'm not in the market for a large freight diesel. Could be tempted to buy the blue one if it was £25 cheaper. However price levels being charged mean I now only buy locos that I really want for my layout,rather than all the ones I think look nice
